From now until 13 Jul 2018, Alaska Mileage Plan is running a sale of up to 40% bonus miles, where you can purchase miles for as low as 2.1 cents each.
You can purchase a maximum of 60000 miles at a time, bringing your total to 84000 miles. There is, however, no limit to the number of transactions you can make, meaning you can obtain loads of miles from Alaska.
You can find many ways to use your miles, such as the ‘almost’ round trip Business Class on JAL for 25000 miles, or under S$700! You can also fly to the US in First Class on Cathay Pacific for only 70000 miles. The 40% bonus sale on Alaska Mileage Plan is the best publicly available sale that we’ve seen, so it might be worthwhile to stock up on your miles if you’ve got a redemption in mind.
Coincidentally, SPG is also running a sale until 20 Jul 2018. This is most probably the final sale for you to purchase Starpoints, before the SPG programme merges with Marriott.
For this sale, enjoy 35% off the usual price when you purchase Starpoints. Bear in mind that you can only purchase a maximum of 30000 Starpoints per calendar year. Starpoints can be converted to frequent flyer miles too. Specifically, convert 20000 Starpoints to Alaska (1:1) and receive a bonus 5000 miles, bringing your total to 25000 miles. This effectively brings the cost per mile down to 1.8 cents each!
For both sales, use your Citi Rewards Card and earn 4 mpd with your purchase!
